A French Art Nouveau figural pewter tobacco jar with silvered patina, titled "Fumée," by François-Raoul Larche. The female nude atop the box emerging from tobacco leaves and abstracted swirlings is a personification of smoke. This is reflected by her swirling smoke-like tresses and the winding torque of her body. A similar gilded piece is pictured in: "Dynamic Beauty: Sculpture of Art Nouveau Paris", by Macklowe Gallery, 2011, p. 180.
